Bin Collections – simplified!

There has understandably been some confusion about bin collections.  We have received a number of queries and felt it would be useful to clarify the current arrangements specifically in Heald Green:

Black bins
There’s no change to your black bin collection and it’ll continue to be emptied every 2 weeks on your normal day.

Blue & Brown bins
Blue and brown bins will be collected together every 4 weeks. Your blue bin needs to be put out the same day as your usual brown bin collection.

Green bins
Green bins are being collected on the same day as your black bin, every two weeks. Green bins are for garden and food waste.

You can find the most up to date information about bin collections on the council’s website at
